If there is a hole on the spout itself then you should go ahead and replace th.e whole faucet. This will save you both time and money in the long run

Solaris Model #06544860 leaking under the sink. How do I remove and how do I figure out exactly what is leaking?


The first thing I would do is to locate source of the leak. Look carefully at faucet when it is on and see if you have any water leaking from areator and running back down the underside of spout and leaking around base of faucet, also see if you have any leaks around handle. If the leak is from the areator you can just replace it and not have to remove the faucet. when you check under sink on faucet supply lines make sure they aren't leaking at that point. I would use paper towels or rags to wipe everything dry under faucet and let it set for 1/2 hour then check again. If it.s still dry run some water and use both hot and cold water seperatly,checking underside in between. If you determine that leak is coming from top side and leaking thru. Shut off water supply valves if available if not shut off supply to house, make sure water is off before proceeding. Disconnect supply lines from faucet,Remove retaing nuts on either side of base,and remove washers. Remove faucet and check for any obvious faults. If you think it was leaking around base get a small tub of plumbers putty. Most hardware stores stock it. Remove a golf ball sized portion or larger and knead in your hands until it is warm and pliable. Press into place in faucet base. Continue doing this until it's full. Reinstall plastic or rubber base gasket and put faucet back in place Put washers and retaing nuts back on a tighten till snug. Center faucet where you want it and tighten securely. Scrape off excess putty with knife point and wipe with paper towels till clean. Hook up supply lines and turn water back on. Check for leaks and good luck. Thank you

Handle won't stay up


I did the same thing recently, that is replaced the cartridge on my moen kitchen faucet to stop and leak, and I also have the same problem. I called moen back and they sent me another cartridge that was supposed to fit tighter, I suppose. I just put the new one in and it still wont stay up. I'm going to call moen one more time and then I guess I'll have to buy another faucet, but NOT moen!!! Good luck with yours.

Faucet is leaking from the cold water line inside the faucet. it is a danze lazio pull out kitchen faucet


Hello
First shut off water to faucet.There should be a allen screw that holds the faucet together near the top back of the handle,lossen this and pull top off.

Next take some pliers and tighten down the lock nuts to compress the washers,do this gently.

Reassemble,water should stop leaking.

Moen kitchen faucet model 7430 leak


cartridge does not stop that type of leak. If it is leaking from around the base of the spout it is o-rings that are the problem that are onthe valve after you pull the spout all the way off.

I have a kitchen sink faucet that is leaking water from the back part of the faucet. There is a hole there and the faucet leaks water, when the water is on. Why is it doing this?


If it is a rusted hole get new faucet, but on many faucets that is where the Sprayer connects. Check for loose Sprayer hose at faucet under the sink.
